I used to have exactly that same rock tumbler. I have a bunch of polished rocks out in my garden that the kids and I made with that thing.

I don't have the instructions, but there are some perfectly great generic instructions on the geology.com web site: http://geology.com/rock-tumbler/rock-tumbler-instructions.shtml

I used these directions with great success.

Wow that is a nice one you have, it is probably quieter with the plastic cover. I use to tumble my rocks either in the basement or in an empty drawer in my dresser to sort of block out some of the noise. The one I had when I was younger was probably the first do it yourself old Smithsonian rock tumbler. I'd say that was probably one of the best gifts that I have ever received.
Well, first, you put the bag of rocks that you want to tumble in the tumbler. Make sure it only fills the barrel 2/3-3/4 full or you may have to extend polishing time.
then, usually you use the thickest to the thinnest grit in that order. You put the thickest grit in first and let the rocks tumble from 7-10 days (for optimal polishing). You will do this for each grit you use.

Make sure there is no grit transferred from one step to the next. Hope this helps :)

I just got an edu science microscope for my grandson and it does not have a manual. Where can I print a manual off or how do I get one??


This is a Toys R US exclusive merchandise item. Call them at 1-800-869-7787 24/7 customer service and ask if they can email or mail the instructions to you. I dont see any other way of getting them.
Good luck

We have a rock tumbler and have lost the instructions. How long are we to tumble each stage? I assume that the sand goes inside the tumbler with the rocks. We need some directions.


Fill the barrel most of the way with stones, add coarse grit, add enough water to just cover the stones and then clean where the lid seals carefully. Seal it up and run it for a week, dump everything into a colander and rinse. Don't run that mud down your drain because it will plug it mightily, run it outside.

Do the same process with the fine grit, run it for another week and rinse and admire.
